JUSTICE NOW FOR ALTON STERLING - PETITION TO LOUISIANA AG JEFF LANDRY

This petition had 953 supporters


On July 5, 2016, 37-year-old Baton Rouge native Alton Sterling, Sr. was shot several times at close range while held down on the ground by Baton Rouge Police Department officers, Howie Lake II and Blane Salamoni.  

The shooting was recorded by multiple witnesses, viewed by millions worldwide and ultimately led to a civil rights investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice investigated but in May 2017 decided that it would not file criminal charges against the police officers. After this decision was made by the Department of Justice, Louisiana State Attorney General Jeff Landry, said the state of Louisiana would open an investigation into the shooting once the Department of Justice releases the physical evidence. 

As citizens of EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, STATE OF LOUISIANA we demand a decision in regards to the state investigation into the killing of Alton Sterling, Sr. on July 5, 2016, by Baton Rouge Police Officers Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II. We are calling on State Attorney General Jeff Landry to conduct a public meeting to inform the citizens of EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH on the current status of any an all internal or external investigations and that a decision is rendered forthwith.
